11:16 pm
potentially qualify, fewer than 180,000 have applied? why? >> there is certain uncertainty as to what will happen with a new administration if president obama is not reelected. >> reporter: another major concern for unauthorized immigrants, the fact that their personal information would be in the hands of the government that could potentially deport them. however, immigration services has said that unless these individuals pose a tletd to national security or have ai criminal history, their information will not be used against them. and while people like daniel will emerge from the shadows and finally be seen he still won't be heard. >> not a path to citizenship. >> exactly. or residency. it's not. >> reporter: this is just -- >> a temporary fix until congress gets its act together and can actually fix the broken immigration system. >> erika gonzalez, news4. >> tomorrow california lottery officials will reveal the name
11:17 pm
of a woman who nearly lost a $23 million jackpot. the woman bought the winning ticket for her mother back in may. according to "the los angeles times," she both forgot about the ticket until lottery officials published this photo and the daughter saw herself in the paper this week. the ticket was in her glove compartment the whole time. jackpot was set to expire in three weeks, at which point all 23 million would have gone to the california school system. oh, my goodness! >> close call. >> ma, you see that lotto ticket? no, honey, i'm not sure. okay. that's cool. >> i cannot imagine what it would feel like to know you almost, almost messed up on $23 million. >> right. kind of cold out there tonight, doug. >> it's chilly. it is. that's the way it's going to be for the next couple of days, maybe, as i mentioned, the next two weeks potentially. out there right now, let's take a look, for the record, look at this, a beautiful shot, the
11:18 pm
world war ii monument as well as the washington monumen great shot out there this evening. photographer chris kerwin getting this for us earlier tonight. yes, on the cool side, the flags blowing in the wind as you look down towards the capitol, those flags blowing as a result of a breeze, making it feel even cooler. 52 degrees the temperature right now, 43 the low this morning. the average high 63 so we're more than it 10 degrees below average. look down here, what's next? well, what's next could be a potential coastal system. talk about that in a second. 49 at th$49 at the airport, win the west 7 miles an hour, giving us a little bit of a windchill across the area. some locations sitting in the mid-30s for the windchill, most in the 40s. actual temperature 43 in winchester, culpeper clearing skies so it's going to cool quicker, 37, right now 50 in annapolis, that with cloud cover and shower activity.
11:19 pm
look at the shower activity over the last hour. a few sprinkles around the district about an hour and a half ago. those are moving through the chesapeake, through annapolis, and down into portions of southern st. mary's river. what are we going to see? as far as the rain is concerned, we won't see much in terms of rain. look at the clearing skies behind this system. but there's yet another system on the heels that's going to come through this area during the day tomorrow. we'll start off i think with sunshine, mostly cloudy skies but at least some sun. i think we'll see sunshine during the day tomorrow that will make it feel a little better. still will be on the cool side, plenty of breezy conditions tomorrow, too. not just breezy but cool and breezy. the sun will help a little bit so hopefully see more sunshine than clouds. with that breeze, an extra chill. a jacket a necessity during the day tomorrow. saturday a little breezy, but i do think we'll see more sunshine as our trough finally pulls out of here. that storm that sandy helped to
11:20 pm
bring us, a deep trough of pressure over the east coast, starting to exit the area. but it's still here, the trough itself, and that has the pattern set for a possible coastal storm late next week. or at least the middle of next week. here is the trough we have. later next week, we'll watch the trough deepen to the south and then an area of low pressure form along it, potentially moving up the coast. this is key. if it moves from the gulf of mexico through ur area, this could be a potent storm, maybe even a nor'easter, afking washington and also new york city. hopefully it will stay off the coast. we have about six days to watch it, and you know we'll keep you ahead of the storm right here on nbc 4. tomorrow morning, mostly cloudy, continued cold, 34 to 40 degrees. you'll see the numbers in t mid-50s in the afternoon. breezy and chilly saturday and sunday, partly sunny skies, not a bad weekend but cold.
11:21 pm
monday, tuesday looking okay as we get out to vote hopefully on tuesday, should be fine. watching that possible storm on wednesday, it could possibly affect us as early as tuesday. but right now i think it will be wednesday into early thursday and it does look like we will would get at least something out of it. we'll continue to watch it for you. >> let us know, will you? >> yes, i will. >> thank you, doug.

11:25 pm
the redskins this year. they're favored over the 1-6 panthers sunday, but the panthers aren't as bad as their record indicates. carolina has been in every single game except one so this will not be an easy game for the skins. familiar refrain in the locker room this week, it's all about us. the redskins played so poorly against the steelers they didn't give themselves a chan to win. if the redskins can catch the ball and get a few defensive stops, they may be able to stop the bleeding in what has turned into a must-win game sunday. mike shanahan wants to see veterans like deandro hall set a better example for the young fellows. >> this is where normally football teams are taken over by their veterans. or you can go one direction or another. you expect these guys to play at a higher level. you expect the experienced guys to get the homost out of the players who are younger and not
11:26 pm
played at the highest level they can. it's step up or shut up. >> it's a must-win situation. we have to win by any means necessary. we want to definitely go into the bye with a good taste in our mouth. >> at this point, all of our goals are in front of us. we still have five division games left to play, and a lot can happen in eight games. >> you know, before the season started virginia tech was ranked 16th in the country. they were thinking conferences championship. tonight the hokies got a hurricane-size dose of harsh reality, thumped by miami, virginia tech sits at 4-5 and must win two of the last three to become bowl eligible. tech and miami's seasons both disappointing. first quarter, no score, uh-oh, bad snap and the punt is fwloked. miami recovers and for a team that takes great pride in special teams, frank beamer
11:27 pm
certainly not beaming after that play. miami capitalizes, the touchdown. hokies down 7-0. then in the second quarter, now 14-3, tech quarterback logan thomas with the keeper right up the gut and dare i say nobody in sight. 73 yards for the touchdown. the 16th rushing touchdown of his career, more than former hokie michael vick. thomas had 120 yards on the ground but he was inconsistent through the air. miami wins in a rout 30-12, the final. >> maryland soccer ranked number 1 in the country, lost for the first time in 17 matches, falling to wake forest 4-2. let's hit the helipad. now back to miami, the marlins hired mike redman to be their new manager, a former catcher who once played for the marlins. patriots traded with tampa bay
